Today after school at approximately 3:45 p.m., one of Hillside’s fifth graders was hit by a slow moving vehicle as he darted out from the curb to his waiting transportation on Orange Road. As of this writing, I observed scratches on his elbow and knee while he sat in his mother’s car.
Staff supervisors witnessed our student get up and walk to his waiting transportation. The Montclair Police Traffic Unit and ambulance were on hand to investigate and monitor our student’s well being.
If your child is a carpooler, please pick them up as outlined in the cafeteria. Again, if your child is a walker or bike rider, please reinforce all safety procedures. Thank you for your attention to this serious matter.
